    Help finding good references for sci fi futures?

    I was doing a brief short fantasy sci fi graphic novel for fun, I was putting a lot of effort into doing the designs just for fun, I want it to be authentic and realistic. Thanks.

    If you'd like to be more realistic I'd advice to look at the following:
    1. General physics on the most basic level.
    2. Look at machinery of all kinds, find schematics for it, compare, try to understand how it operates.
    3. Depending on what kind of setting you plan address more specific popular literature on branches of technology you'd line to make accent on (spaceflight, biotechnology etc.). Concentrate on ptototypes, proof-of-concept works, complex scientific equippment (such as a stellarator - pretty sci-fi'ish) etc.
    4. Read sci-fi books for further inspiration.
